First, though we tried to valet park our car several times, two different people working there tried to talk us out of it. We also asked about self-parking but we never found out where the structure was. They told us to park on the street and that we wouldn't get ticketed. It seemed like a nice gesture for them to try to save us money, but I wasn't too sure about leaving my car on the street for three days. We didn't seem to have much of a choice, though, so we parked on the street and hoped for the best. Luckily, they were right and we did not receive any tickets (or break-ins), but it was bothersome to try to find a parking spot everytime we left and came back.
Next, the lobby and hallways were not air conditioned. When we there, the lobby felt like 90 degrees with about 90% humidity. When we first arrived, there was no one at the front desk, so we got to wait in this pleasant climate for about 10 minutes until someone came out to check us in.
The bellman (Jarrell?) was very nice and helpful. Our room was large, clean, and surprisingly cool. The lobby sells snack and items so that you can take advantage of the full kitchen in the room. Unfortunately, the hotel does not have a pool.
The breakfast in the morning was better than your average hotel breakfast, but it ended at 9 am. They also provided a light dinner in the evening, along with free beer and wine. According to one of the employees, the best night is the BBQ night (on Wednesday or Thursday), but we weren't there for that.
Overall, this was a great place to stay in Memphis. It was a few blocks (about 10 minutes' walk) to Beale Street, and a short drive to other attractions.
